Please check you’re registered to vote – don’t just assume that you are (although all Labour members really should be already). Register before 26 November 2019 to vote in the general election on 12 December 2019.
If you’ve moved house recently, you need to re-register at your new address.
If you’re turning 18 on or before 12 December you can register ahead of your 18th birthday. As you can register as soon as you turn 16, there’s no need to wait.
Students can register at both your home and university addresses. You can only vote once but registering in both allows you to choose to vote in the constituency where it will benefit Labour the most. Please make sure that you have registered in both, so that you can decide where’s best to vote Labour in the general election on 12 December 2019.
Apply for a postal vote here if bad weather or the dark might put you off going out to vote in the general election on 12 December. Anyone can apply for a postal vote – you don’t have to give a reason. But you do need to apply before 5pm on 26 November.
With your National Insurance number it only takes a few minutes to register online here. Even if you don’t have an NIC number, you can still register online, for example using an NHS or student ID number.
If you’re not sure whether you are already registered or not, it doesn’t do any harm to register online again. If you want to check whether you are already registered in Brighton or Hove, you can contact Electoral Services at Hove Town Hall using the contact information here, and there’s more information on registering to vote from Brighton & Hove City Council here.
Please spread the word on voter registration with all your friends and family.
The most important thing we can do right now is to get all Labour supporters, especially young people, registered to vote.
Don’t lose your voice, or your vote – make sure that you are registered to vote.
